Glass balustrades create a dramatic look in any Edgbaston home or commercial property, and can be used for all kinds of applications including staircases, balconies and terraces. A glass balustrade can give your Edgbaston property an elegant finish and allow uninterrupted views. This simultaneously creates the feeling of space, while also attractively defining it.
One very important aspect of glass balustrades in any home or commercial premises in Edgbaston or the West Midlands, is safety. Balustrades should always be made from toughened glass, so that there can be no concerns about glass shattering if someone or something knocks into it. You should only ever use glass balustrade systems for your Edgbaston property that comply with all the latest safety standards and are professionally installed by a qualified and experienced installer.
Choose your finish
Another thing to consider when choosing your balustrades for your Edgbaston home or commercial premises is whether to opt for a clear or sandblasted finish. A clear finish means a room will have a great sense of space, while a sandblasted finish can create opaque areas or even show a design such as a company logo.
Choose your thickness
Lastly, the right thickness of balustrade will depend on where it will sited and the safety properties required. There are different thicknesses of glass available for balustrades, normally ranging from 8mm to 15mm, but they can go up to 25mm. For example, balustrades for the balcony of your Edgbaston home may require thicker glass than an internal staircase balustrade.
